Quick Guide to Failure Mode and Effects Analysis
Often, faults in products and services are detected through extensive testing and predictive modeling in the later stages of development. However, finding a problem at this point in the cycle can add significant cost and delays to schedules. The challenge is to design in quality and reliability at the beginning of the process and ensure that defects never arise in the first place. One way that Lean Six Sigma practitioners can achieve this is to use failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA), a tool for identifying potential problems and their impact. Read more..
The Advantages of Modular Process Skids Over Static Modular Plants
Modular fabrication is an off-site fabrication and integration process that reduces traditional downtime through parallel construction. This means finished process plants are brought to site much faster than using the traditional plant expansion techniques. A modular approach to your process system means a shorter project completion time by allowing site civil and facilities construction to happen simultaneously along side process system construction. Having a modular plant design means your system will be built indoors, under ideal plant conditions, while necessary site civil and facilities engineering is completed. This ultimately leads to better quality and faster completion times. Read more..
